The National Constitution Center presents:
The concert will open with “Wider Than the Sky” by prolific art-song composer Lori Laitman. Set to an Emily Dickinson poem, this song was performed at the Justice’s eightieth birthday celebration, along with “My Dearest Ruth” by American composer Stacy Garrop, based on the farewell love letter penned to Justice Ginsburg by her beloved husband, Martin “Marty” Ginsburg, shortly before his death in 2010. Juno Award–winning Canadian composer Vivian Fung’s “Pot Roast à la RBG” details a typical evening in the Ginsburg household circa 1972 in which daughter Jane Ginsburg humorously describes her mother’s notoriously poor culinary skills. Songs inspired by American poet-activists Emma Lazarus (Lee Hoiby’s “Lady of the Harbor”) and Langston Hughes (John Musto’s “Litany”) offer additional perspective on Justice Ginsburg’s influences.
